President Donald Trump has treated his daughter, Ivanka, like one of his many girlfriends since she was barely a teenage girl. Referring often to her body and looks, Trump also took a number of uncomfortable pictures of Ivanka and himself while she was growing up. Trump shows no cognizance that these pictures might be inappropriate or creepy to normal people.
The Wendy Williams Show
On October 26th, 2016, both Donald Trump and Ivanka made a promotional appearance on The Wendy Williams Show. At one point, the host asked both of them what they most have in common. Ivanka went first and took the Trump family line, answering that she and her father had golf and real estate in common.
Trump was not to be held to the conventional, however. When it came to his turn, he blurted out, “I was going to say sex!” before qualifying the answer by saying he can't say that. I guess that's showing a modicum of understanding of what's acceptable in society. A very small modicum.
What father’s first inclination is to say what he has in common with his daughter is sex? Men, just think about it—Do you think that way? Does anyone you know think that way? And, if by chance, you do know someone who thinks this way get them in therapy, stat.
The Howard Stern Show in 2004 and 2006
Donald Trump has appeared many times over the years on The Howard Stern Show, and most of those times, the conversation has turned crude. But in one of these conversations, the talk turned specifically to Trump’s daughter, Ivanka.
In 2006, Stern asked Trump if Ivanka had gotten breast implants. Trump denied this, claiming Ivanka’s statuesque form left her well-endowed. In the 2004 interview, Trump started out by declaiming his daughter’s great beauty.
“Can I say this?” asks Stern, referring to Ivanka. “A piece of ass.”
“Yeah,” Trump answers.
Here’s another situation where I believe if you asked just about any father you meet if he would be comfortable with other men referring to his daughter as a “piece of ass,” the response would involve curses, threats, or worse. Trump takes it as a compliment.
Stormy Daniels—Ivanka Surrogate?
Porn star, Stormy Daniels, began a relationship with Donald Trump around the time Melania was giving birth to Barron. In 2011, she gave an in-depth article about this affair. But just before the 2016 elections, she received a mysterious payout of $130,000 to not acknowledge the affair. We now know the hush money payments came from Donald Trump himself, through his lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen.
But looking back at that article, we find yet another creepy reference to Ivanka. While Trump was with Daniels, she said, “He told me once that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful, smart, just like his daughter.” Ew.
Daddy Daughter Date
Trump and Ivanka both appeared on The View in 2006. After an awkward discussion about how Trump would probably be fine with Ivanka appearing in Playboy because she has such an awesome body, Trump attempted to move on.
Trump said, “I don’t think Ivanka would do that, although she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said that if Ivanka wasn’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” Once again, think about the fathers you know. Who says this?
The whole situation isn’t helped by the apparent fact that Trump was having an affair with playmate Karen McDougal at the same time. She received a $150,000 payment from an undetermined source not to talk just before the 2016 elections.
BuzzFeed News reported that in an article for the Washington Post, columnist Richard Cohen wrote that then-President-elect Trump had once asked, “Is it wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?”
This quote didn’t make it into the final cut of the article for whatever reason, but it is a particularly vile and creepy comment as Ivanka was only 13 at the time.
Papa Was a Rolling Stone
Donald Trump had an interview in the September 2015 issue of Rolling Stone magazine. After the interviewer met Ivanka and said nice things about her, Trump responded, “Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father…”
Again, it is not normal to think of your own daughter in such sexualized terms. This is deeply weird. Donald Trump has shown a repeated pattern of behavior that sexualizes his daughter since she was barely a teenager and seems to favor her for her looks. His bizarre, and frankly sick, referrals to Ivanka as a possible mate, or a "piece of ass," or other strictly objectified physical terms are not the behaviors of a normal, loving father.

I can't believe there are still people out there that think he is the best thing since sliced bread. Where are our morals?
